Privatisation: Untapped Investment Opportunities in Ukraine and CEE Experience

Past event
06 October 2020, 11:00 - 12:00

The State Property Fund of Ukraine embarked on an ambitious plan to sell hundreds of properties and companies throughout Ukraine. The new team of the State Property Fund of Ukraine has completely overhauled the sales process by virtue of transparent auctions, modernised the preparation of data for the investors and established a list of assets subject to privatisation in 2020 and beyond.

This massive privatisation goes on as we speak and as you read this announcement. The much-acclaimed privatisation of the Dnipro Hotel in the very heart of Kyiv has now successfully taken place notwithstanding the COVID-19 crisis. This is a really important signal to the investors to re-open Ukraine as an investment destination.

The new privatisation legislation has established a conceptually new approach towards privatisation in Ukraine. Ukrainian Government has repeatedly emphasised the strategic importance of privatisation for the Ukrainian economy and the need for success privatisation stories. With the adoption of the new privatisation legislation, foreign and domestic investors have boosted their hope and trust in the privatisation in Ukraine.

On 6 October 2020, our guest speaker - Taras Yeleyko, the Deputy Head of the State Property Fund of Ukraine (having 15 years of experience in investment financial management and asset management, who developed an efficient process for selling assets of insolvent banks via Prozorro system), together with legal experts and partners of CMS Cameron McKenna Nabarro Olswang Ukraine Ihor Olekhov, Tetyana Dovgan and Graham Conlon will meet to discuss privatisation success stories and present to the investors the privatisation opportunities that Ukraine offers. Our experts will also address the most popular questions related to all aspects of privatisation and will share their expert views on how to maximise the success of the acquisitions within the privatisation process and get the most out of it (including based on successful privatisation experience in CEE).

Don’t miss the opportunity to get prepared for your own successful privatisation case and find the untapped potential for investment opportunities in Ukraine. 

The language of the webinar will be English.
